6:14 am
pthe mid 70s so seasonable ptoday. ptomorrow still pretty much think pit's going to be the warmest day pof the week overall. phere is the way the rest of the pweek will set up. pwe'll watch a cold front drop to pthe southeast. palso the severe weather they're plooking at in tennessee, parts pof kentucky for tomorrow as pwell. pby wednesday morning, you'll pstart to see it work into the anhandle and eventually through phere on thursday. pso there's your first round of prain this week. pthe interesting thing is behind pthis front, another low is going pto develop and move across our pstate on sunday so just based on pnew information that i just plooked at, i shifted the rain pfrom saturday into sunday so you pcould be looking at a thursday, psunday event. pso partly sunny, isolated shower
6:15 am
pagain, if you get i quick psprinkle or shower today, it's pnot a big deal. poverall, less than 20% chance of pthat happening. pthe big thing tonight is when pthe winds start that shift to pthe south, you're going to run pall that warmer air over the pcooler waters of the gulf. pthat's going to generate some psea fog so overnight lows around p64 degrees with the fog along pthe coastline, tomorrow morning pscattered clouds inland. pwe have a shot of making it up pto 80 degrees for a high ptemperature tomorrow. pover the weekends boating looks pfantastic. psoutheast winds at five, seas prunning less than two. phigh tide at 8:45 this morning. pi mentioned a couple of rounds pof halfway decent rain. pfirst what's going to be on pthursday, some thunderstorm pactivity. pi know it's the first day of the pstate fair but then it looks plike sunday, another decent pchance of picking up showers as pwell. pvanessa? p>>vanessa: thank you, dave. pi do want to revisit that deadly pcrash i mentioned at the top of

6:35 am
pstandard. pit has correctly projected the pwinner every year since 1988 pexcept for the 2012 republican pcaucus. p>>laura: that poll predicted pthat romney while people in iowa pturned out for rick santorum. promney went on to win the pnomination. phere is how the race looks just phours before the first vote of pthe 2016 race is cast. pit shows donald trump leading prepublican field in iowa by 28%. pted cruz with 23%. pand marco rubio rounds out the ptop three with 15%. p>>russell: hillary clinton leads pbernie sanders, just 3% pseparating them and martin po'malley is sitting at 3%. pso that means o'malley psupporters could tip the scales pone way or the other. p>>laura: historically the iowa pcaucuses have also been good redictors of who will win the residential nominations.
6:36 am
psince 1996: they were right icking george bush, bob dole pand george w. bush. pmore recently they've been wrong icking mike huckabee in 2008 p2012. p>>russell: craig patrick is in pthe iowa political hurricane. phe's in des moines waiting for pit all to begin and we'll hear pof "good day." p>>laura: coming up, dave will pbring us a look at our work week p i predict someone like me pdespite your jealousy

pone of the performers of grease during this extended visit from your extended family, all you want is a peaceful moment to stream your show. and you need enough bandwidth to share with a full house of hungry users. lightning internet from bright house networks. the speed you need. and now connect to... standard tv and 50 megabit lightning internet... only $94 a month for 12 months. i don't know what i'm doing. just when i think it's just this woman that works there comes over and asks can i help you? and he was so happy, to do it amazing right? i never would have expected would have thought that anyone would find that do that. make that go out of their way for me. right then, right there
6:38 am
he was so helpful i know it's such a small thing little thing. simple thing but it made me smile made me happy made my day share your story.
6:39 am
p>>dave: and top 'o the morning pto you. retty start to the day. phalfway sunshine. pwe are getting some thicker pcloud cover to move out of here. pdon't get me wrong, we'll have psome clouds to mix in with the psunshine today, but it has been pa pretty start to the day. pand a pretty mild start, too. plook at new tampa, 60 degrees. pwest chase is 63. pthese are huge improvements. pyou remember how chilly it was
6:40 am
pstarting off in the 60s. pa couple of spots, inverness was pone that's gotten back to 59 pdegrees. pstill 53 is our normal low for pthis time of year so even our pcoolest temperature is still prunning about six degrees above pnormal. pi got bradenton at 63. psarasota at 62. pvenice with a temperature of 64 pand then lower 60s as well. pde soto and highlands county, pyou can watch as the thicker pcloud cover just exits to the psouth and the east. pbut we're also going to have pmore of a south to southeast pwind for today so we're bringing pin more moisture interacting pwith the day. pwe'll see a few clouds mixing in pwith the sunshine. pthink about february 1, we're pgoing to have temperatures in pthe mid 70s. preally nothing to complain pabout. pmild air through most of the psoutheast. pover the next 24 to 36 hours, preally going to tell the tale of
6:41 am
plater -- latter half of our pweek. pi put the rainfall forecast into pmotion. pfor monday through friday, you pcan see this is really mostly pgoing to be on thursday, 3/4 pinch to an inch of rain in our parea but over on the state pcapitol, they could pick up a pcouple of inches of rain. pso we're going to have two prounds of rain this week. pi think the first one for us in pearnest is going to be on pthursday. pthis cold front dropping to the psouth and the east. psounds familiar like the other pfronts picking up moisture from pthe gulf, bringing in a line of pshowers and thunderstorms with pit and that line moves through pon thursday. pthe front stalls out over south pflorida. pa little wave of low pressure, pyep, moved right across the gulf pover this weekend and that may pgive us another round of rain on psunday so you're looking at like pa thursday, sunday time frame to ick up showers. pthursday is the first day of the pstate fair but it's good luck pwhen it rains on the first day pof the state fair.
6:42 am
